Careful, Precise and fluid

The warrior is all these things and more

The blade is his life, the air he breathes,

his erratic heart beat in the midst of battle

Yet, he needs to feel as well

And the blade is also his conduit to that

With his weapon, he sees life and death, worries and hopes

He judges them: innocent or guilty?

The blade is the decision: an used blade is the innocent

red blade signifies the guilty

What signifies an innocent or a guilty?

Sometimes things get muddled

and when a decision is made

all the warrior can do is stand back

and watch it all unfold...
